Owl Edge Externships
Owl Edge Externships, developed in partnerships with the Initiative for Students and the Center for Career Development, are one to five-day job shadowing experiences designed to give undergraduate students a tangible, realistic idea of a day in the life in your career field. The job shadowing experience may include touring your facility, sharing your career path, observing you at staff or client meetings, interviewing other colleagues, and visiting with the human resource professional to understand career opportunities. There are two opportunities for you to host a one to five-day Owl Edge Externship.

Homecoming & Reunion 2017 Ambassadors
Homecoming & Reunion 2017 ambassadors are comprised of alumni who are excited to reconnect with the university as well as their classmates. Ambassadors play an important role during Homecoming & Reunion by reaching out to fellow alumni to raise awareness, share plans, obtain feedback, participate in planning calls and encourage strong participation at all Homecoming & Reunion events. The length of the volunteer term will be April through Dec. 2017 and the anticipated time commitment is two to four hours per month. The tasks of ambassador volunteers will adjust depending on the time frame they join since the needs will shift as the weekend approaches.
